Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) resumed cruises on July 25, with heightened health and safety protocols to ensure customers feel even safer at sea.
The resumption of service comes following a 500-day suspension, which the cruise company has used to introduce new measures to protect cruisers, including improved continuous ship-wide cleaning and sanitation practices and upgraded medical standard air filters.
Every guest and crew member needs to be fully vaccinated before boarding a NCL ship to ensure that, once on board, every part of the ship is open to all guests for them to safely explore and enjoy.
Cruises available to book include the newly revitalized Norwegian Epic that is offering seven-day Western Mediterranean cruises in 2021 with departures from Rome (Civitavecchia). The ship then sails to Naples, Cagliari, then to Spain stopping in Palma Majorca and Barcelona. The unforgettable Florence and Pisa are also on the itinerary with debarkation again in Rome.
Meanwhile, customers looking for a longer holiday should consider Norwegian Getaway, which is offering 10-day Greek Isles and Italy cruises with departures scheduled from Rome (Civitavecchia).
Destinations include some of the most picture-perfect Greek Isles, such as Santorini and Mykonos, and Italian gems like Naples and Florence.
“We are delighted to be cruising again and we have used the downtime to ensure that our itineraries entice and our ships are as safe as possible,” said Nick Wilkinson, NCL’s regional vice president for business development, MEA.
“Breaking the boundaries of traditional cruising for 53 years, NCL offers you the best in freedom and flexibility to cruising, so you can holiday on your own schedule with no assigned dining and entertainment times and no formal dress code.”
NCL has 17 contemporary ships that sail to more than 300 of the world’s most desirable destinations, including Northern Europe, with its blend of history and culture, and the Mediterranean where guests can soak up its stunning sites and culinary delights.
In addition to its superior guest service from land to sea, NCL offers a variety of award-winning entertainment, dining options and a range of staterooms across the fleet.
Guests can choose from numerous accommodation options including solo-traveler staterooms, mini-suites, spa-suites and The Haven by Norwegian, NCL’s ship-within-a-ship concept.
And now is the perfect time to book thanks to NCL’s latest offer, which combines 30 percent off all sailings and all five “Free at Sea” offers in one package!
